Welcome Jason.

It depends on where you store the videos and how large the videos are. Most likely an app like this would be very limited.

YouTube is hosted on servers to stream data. You can mimic YouTube by

  • making a website hosted on a server that will store your videos
  • link to the content videos using App Inventor and the VideoPlayer component possibly. :cry:


Using App Inventor you might be able to store videos on GoogleDrive then use your app to select which video and play it on your Android using the VideoPlayer component.

What have you tried?

You joined just 18 hrs ago and started to ask questions about making Youtube/Facebook/Instagram.
Looks like spam to me.

Because you don't have enough experience of how things work in AI2.
